FlexLink Improves Lead Time for Assembly Line Modules
XT assembly line module.
Allentown, PA — FlexLink's supply division has made a significant reduction in lead time of standard XT assembly line modules to satisfy customer requirements.

The XT conveyor is a twin-track, flexible plastic chain pallet conveyor. The system is especially well suited for manual and automatic assembly and test systems in the automotive and electrical/electronics industries. The modular concept allows simplified engineering and ordering, as well as fast configuration together with plug and play capabilities for improved productivity. Based on increased customer demand for shorter delivery times, the company's supply division has thoroughly investigated the manufacturing process of the XT assembly line modules. Warehousing strategies, lean order and project handling together with improved manual module assembly were key points in reducing the lead time. All XT assembly line modules are assembled in the company-owned production and engineering center in Sady, close to Poznan in Poland. The efficiency in workflows through a well implemented quality system and the improved productivity of the now experienced Polish-based production and engineering team have combine to provide an important competitive advantage.

According to the company, It has a comprehensive innovation program in place but also a strong focus on maintenance and constant improvements of existing conveyor platforms. The improvements can be mechanical but also service- and lead-time-oriented.
